Nose: Rich fruit cake, sweet demorera sugar and vanilla, underlying hints of zingy citrus and dark chocolate develop with a touch of warm spice.
Palate: Delicious sweetness of stewed raisin and apple is wonderfully complemented by dark chocolate, notes of orange zest, toffee, ginger and liquorice follow, leading to a hint of smooth creaminess and lingering charred oak on the finish.
Water brings out top notes of sweet vanilla, ripe pear and melon and luscious summer berries mingle with hints of butterscotch and citrus peel on the nose. Now again sip and enjoy a creamy sweetness combining with sherry influences and baked plum with traces of cinnamon, chocolate, apricot, orange and charred oak with subtle spice and a light touch of smoke on the finish.
